I Am Toto

Hello, friends!  I'm up at the Paper Bakery Kits today with 
a sweet (if I do say-so myself) layout that I put together using one of the photos from my 
daughter’s last dance recital; as the title implies, she was TOTO :)   Yes, Dorothy’s Toto
 I started out with a light aqua cardstock and went to fun-town with all of the bright colors and textures
 found in the February Paper Bakery Scrapbook Kit!  After drawing out my circle with a template, 
I attached strips of the yellow dot washi tape to mimic rays of sunshine.  
And what better paper to use for a rainbow than the multi-colored striped paper by My Mind’s Eye.
 I used some green letter stickers from my stash to complete the title and layered it with the paper doily, colorful die-cut and flair buttons.  I love the added texture AND hint of sparkle brought by the sequins
 (yep, they’re in the kit too!)  I just attached them to the die-cut with brads.
 The white alpha stickers by Jillibean Soup made the perfect little sub-title around the sun. 
 I used my brand new dies by My Favorite Things ( to whip up some clouds from the patterned paper.  With the three pieces of flair, I created a visual triangle that helps to frame my photo and make it the focal point.  I was hooked on flair, as they’re all over my creations this month :)
The February Paper Bakery Kits are now shipping...grab yours today!
Back tomorrow with a little Unity {inspiration}
See you then!

Beautiful Birthday Shaker Card

Hello and welcome to my contribution to the  SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES and HERO ARTS BLOG HOP

For my project, I have chosen to make this cute shaker birthday card!

Before we get started on the detail, here is a list of supplies that I've used: From Scrapbook Adhesives: Keepsakes Envelope Mix (I used 4" X 3.5") Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4 in, Dual Tip Glue Pen, Crafty Foam Tape Black and the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser with E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Dots Refill.  From Hero Arts: Dress Up Stamp and Cut and Kelly's Flags Stamp & Cut
To begin, I added a few star sequins directly to the sticky part of the Keepsake Envelope.
Next I sprinkled some round sequins inside of the pocket.
I used the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4" to close up the pocket.
I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.  
After die-cutting the dress bottom from patterned paper, it was pleated along the score lines and then…
